Sponsorships available for Veterans Voices of Canada

Executive director says 2017 Remembrance Day will include 15 sites across the country

Dear editor,

Hello everyone! Happy Canada Day weekend!

I can’t think a better time to bring forth again our annual Remembrance initiative: Veterans Voices of Canada-Flags of Remembrance.

Our remembrance and tribute event will see an opening ceremony on October 7 of this year at each of our 15 tribute sites across Canada, representing the 128,000 Canadian killed and missing in action servicemen and women from Boer War to current.

The initiative is coming along nicely, but we still have many sponsorship availabilities to ensure it is a true success. Help us give honour and tribute to our military and RCMP Veterans past and present serving, by sponsoring a hero plaque and flag like then attached at one of our tribute sites.

The cutoff date for sponsoring at this years opening ceremony is August 19, so please get yours in soon.

Also, please check out our website at www.vetvoicecan.org to see exactly what it is we are striving to do. Funds raised by VVOC-flags of Remembrance will assist with our mission, as well as helping other community organizations do their important work.

Contact us here or at flagsnatl@vetvoicecan.org to inquire and to learn how to sponsor your hero.

Cheers, and thank you again for all of your support in the past, and I look forward to your support in the future!

Al Cameron, Founding Executive Director
